Welcome to My Writing Process Blog Tour! I was invited to play along by my wonderful friend Elyzabeth M. VaLey. She did this very thing last week and you can find her post here: http://www.elyzabethmvaley.com/. At the end you will see the other authors that I invited to participate after me. I was supposed to pick three…but as always I had to go above a little and I picked four!
So follow me into the way my crazy Muse works: I was asked four important questions:
1) What am I working on?
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
3) Why do I write what I do?
4) How does your writing process work?
Second question is how does my work differ from others in the genre? Hmm that’s a toughie. I mean if you really think about it in any genre there is an overflow of talent running around. For myself personally I like to write the things that I like to see. I try to be different by I try to take a usual plot and make it my own through my characters.
Hmm now the fourth question is a bit of a tough one. My writing process varies as I have a full time job, two kids who are still little, a eight year old and a ten year old. I have to write where and when I can. I can multitask with the best of them. Meaning I can write while there is a ton of stuff going on in the background. Kids,music,television…you name it, doesn’t bother me. There are the times though, that I need absolute quiet to write. This is few and far between for me but it does happen. I sometimes get images of the characters and name them and build from that. Other times I get the title first or a story idea. It’s never the same process but it does have the same end result.Plain and simply put…I LOVE WRITING!Now for introductions of my fellow authors I’ve chosen to follow in My Writing Process footsteps:Tempeste O’Riley is an out and proud omnisexual / bi-woman whose best friend growing up had the courage to do what she couldn’t–defy the hate and come out.

She counts her friends, family, and Muse as her greatest blessings in life. She lives in Wisconsin with her children, reading, writing, and enjoying life. Tempe is also a proud PAN member of Romance Writers of America® and Rainbow Romance Writers. Learn more about Tempeste and her writing at http://tempesteoriley.com.

Jessica Jayne: I am a born and raised small town Ohio girl, who moved to the Sunshine State after graduating from college. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English because I could not imagine doing anything else but reading and writing. It is such a pleasure to be able to share all the stories in my head!
In the journey of life, I got my law degree (and license) and also became a wife and a mother of three children. So, life is always an adventure.
I love to read and write… obviously! I’m a huge sports fan, especially college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes! Go Steelers! Go Rays! Go Lightning! I LOVE to travel… LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. And I love sharing my love to travel with my children. Did I say I love to travel? I love to drink coffee in the morning and tea at night! I love a good glass of wine, especially if it comes from a bottle made by the FOOLS wine club… yep, I’m a founding member of that crazy group! J I love hanging out with my family and my friends! Music makes me happy. I’m a mix between country girl and city chic. But I love nothing more than putting on my jean shorts, tank top, cowboy boots and hat and watching Tim McGraw or Eric Church belt it out! I’m a sucker for a cowboy hat! J
